I think it will replace the drivers, but you could give a try.

I've got same issue on the newest macos 10.15.4.
Now the app name is changed to Logi Capture. As soon as I start the Logi capture, the slow FPS issue is fixed.
However as soon as I stop the logi capture, the issue occurs again.here is setting.

I'm not familiar with the MacOS, but sounds like the problem is universal and could be related to drivers. In windows it is drivers.
